French Press Tips

It’s simple and all you need is a hot water kettle and a French Press. Well, beans and filtered water too A French press extracts more oils and sediment from the ground coffee than any other brewing method, which contributes to its robust flavor and creamy mouthfeel.

We recommend 1.5 tbsp of beans per 6oz cup.

We suggest that you don’t grind as course as recommended to ensure maximum flavor. I personally grind closer to auto drip setting versus course. This will result in a bolder cup but you will have some sediment in your coffee cup.

I would strongly encourage a scale also! The ratio is 1:12 give or take. So if you have to 1 part coffee you have 12 parts water. Or 30 grams of coffee then you would take 30x12=360g and that’s your water amount.

Once your water has come off a boil let it sit for about 30 seconds to come down to 200°. Water boils at 212°. This is important to optimize flavor extraction.

Often the recommended time to steep is 3/4 minutes. I personally do 5 or 6 minutes. Again for a bolder cup. How can you tell I like it bold!!
